Aunty Diana Aki who lived in the traditional fishing village of Miloli’i aquired the nickname “The Songbird of Miloli’i” because of her clear, sweet voice. She was honored with Best Original song (Haku Mele) for her song “Mana’o Pili” and the 1990 Female Vocalist of the Year for her debut album, Memories of You. One of the songs on that album is a haunting and melodic version of “Songbird”.
